Our 1st cruise, so have nothing to compare it with, but it was definitely a positive experience. Embarkation was easy and efficient, luggage was with us in less than an hour and our cabin was excellent. The food was great and very plentiful! We splashed out and enjoyed the “Chefs Table” one night, well worth it. We had a tour of the galley, which was a real eye opener, how they managed to cater for 800 passengers and 300+ crew in such a small space was beyond belief. It was an 8 course meal, and we expected the portions to be small, but we were so wrong! We could hardly move by the end of the meal. Crew were brilliant, very helpful at all times. Excellent excursions. We embarked at Bristol, and dis-embarkation was at Cardiff, the transfer by coach was easy and problem free. We would be very happy to cruise on this ship again.

Loved it
